What’s up with Anonymous?
Are they for real?
Instinctively I don’t like their V for Vendetta thing. That’s just a Hollywood symbol. Haven’t we gone passed that stage of adolescent movie hero worship?
I saw that film a few years ago, but the only thing I really remember is that the ‘hero’ was torturing his girlfriend in his basement.
However, I don’t mind that much, every positive operation fighting the good fight can use whatever symbols they like, for as far as I’m concerned.
I think they did a good thing finding out about this lunatic.
This cop will have had a bad day. I assume these girl’s husbands, dads and brothers have payed this joker a visit by now and put him on disability leave for a few weeks. After the job was done they provided each other with an alibi and all the rest is history.
This we will need more: all ‘law enforcement’ personnel should be closely monitored, so we can have justice.
Also, I underwrite their motto, ‘we will not forget, we will not forgive’. I used to underwrite this long before Anonymous appeared, it’s not very original either, just like the mask.
However, I have a serious problem with this. Anonymous says it will conduct a Denial of Service attack at the NY Stock Exchange.
Wait a minute….. Say what? They are going to ‘erase the NYSE from the internet’?
Isn’t that an act of Cyberterrorism?
It is in my book.
And why attack the Stock Exchange? Isn’t it absolutely, completely clear that if people object being fleeced by the Global Bank’s trading programs they should simply not ‘invest’ there?
Or is there some God Given right for that I have missed that allows us to fleece others, but to get angry when we get fleeced ourselves? The Stock Exchange is just a wealth transfer mechanism. People go to the Stock Exchange for a free lunch and are disappointed when it transpires it does not exist. Or better: that the free lunch of the Stock Exchange has already been served, with us on the platter.
No, if people want to exploit, or want to be exploited, they should be free to go the NYSE and eat their or somebody else’s heart out.
There is a very easy way to avoid all that: don’t invest there.
This, by the way, is also the easiest way to get rid of all the problems: don’t invest with these banks! Don’t put your money there! Don’t buy at Wal Mart!
And if you do? Then shut up. You’re a big part of the problem. Don’t come clamoring for someone to bail you out. You start sounding like a banker.
This stunt, if it is to go forward, is most unwise at best. It will give Super Congress the excuse they need to reign in free speech on the internet.
To be honest: this whole thing looks like a false flag 2.0: attack ‘in the name of the people’ and then let the people suffer the blowback.
Don’t fall for this one: Anonymous stinks.
Update: Anonymous released a statement, the whole thing was a hoax.
